A meta-regression analysis indicated that greater improvements in BMD were strongly associated with greater reductions in fracture risk, especially in the vertebrae and hip.
Although more women have hip fracture surgery, they are less likely to receive perioperative geriatric care and anesthesia consultations.
Despite the relatively high prevalence of invasive oral events in women treated with denosumab, rates of osteonecrosis of the jaw remain low and tend to resolve with further therapy.
Researchers examined the associations of prevalent vertebral fracture identified on vertebral fracture assessment images in routine practice with incident fractures.

Results from a meta-analysis show that denosumab improved bone mineral density significantly more than bisphosphonates at the lumbar spine, total hip, and femoral neck.
Both high and low niacin intake was associated with a risk for incident hip fractures in older adults.
Measuring serum estradiol during the menopausal transition might help identify women at higher risk for fractures.
Poor glycemic control in patients with newly diagnosed type 1 diabetes, but not type 2 diabetes, was associated with an increased risk for low-trauma fracture.
Bone mineral density measures were significantly greater at 3 years in postmenopausal women with comorbid osteoporosis and rheumatoid arthritis who were given vitamin D and calcium supplementation.
Surgical procedures do not appear to provide significant benefit for patients with vertebral fractures.
